Despite all of the recent controversy, Paula Deen is headlining the Metro Cooking and Entertainment Show in Houston next month, but advertisers aren't exactly promoting her presence!
The celebrity chef recently had a couple victories in her favor as she had her racial discrimination case thrown out and her lawsuit against former employee Lisa Jackson was dropped! However, companies are STILL trying to distance themselves from her!
According to sources, Groupon and Livingsocial are actively trying to avoid promoting Paula's presence at the event, and ticket sales are

The Jersey Shore is over and now The Situation is squeezing every dime he can out of the fame that arose from the MTV show.
Since Las Vegas nightclubs Chateau and Gallery only booked the reality star for a $30K appearance ONCE before June 30th, he's suing a promotion company that promised him THREE paid appearances before that date.
One night with the guido is apparently worth what most Americans make in a year, so he's suing Diversified Entertainment for $60K because the two parties struck a "pay or play" deal.
Basically, The Situation feels the company didn't live up to its end of the bargain and wants a lot more money for doing
a lot more nothing.
But will he get it? Stay tuned!

However, now he also has to pay an additional $400,000 to the festival organizers because a judge determined he failed to fulfill his commitment to them.

Looks like concert prices MAY be more reasonable next year.
Concert promoters are reportedly planning to cut ticket prices in an effort to get fans back out to shows in 2011.
After poor concert attendance in 2010, promoters have said that they'll change their tactics by charging less for tickets and making the effort to sell more t-shirts and other merchandise to compensate.
Of course, this will probs only apply to artists who haven't been filling up seats.
Those GaGa tickets are unlikely to go down in price TOO much…but at least they're worth absolutely every penny!
Will U go to more concerts in 2011 if ticket prices go down?
